What can I do to make things go smoothly when I quit Sprint for another mobile provider in a few months? [more inside]
I just moved to a new part of the state, and had a landline telephone installed through my local telco. I asked if they could port my old number (123)-xxx-xxxx to my new landline, and they said my old number was not in the same "Rate Center". I confirmed that they were telling the truth based on this AskMeFi post. I have the option to enable call forwarding from my old number to my new landline, which takes care of incoming calls. Now I am turning to you, the hivemind, to find out how to dial out from my new landline, and have my old number, (123)-xxx-xxxx, show up on other peoples' caller ID. I've done some searching and found a bunch of convoluted VoIP setups that would achieve this solution for me, but I'm not that technical, and I don't want to have to dial a million numbers just to make a single phone call from my land-line. Does the hive mind have any simple solutions?
How can I keep my old cell number, and forward all calls to my new work cell? Reliability is key, not-expensive is good. [more inside]
Cheap call-forwarding or voice-mail-only or recorded-message-only services to point phone numbers to?
I'm thinking of switching phone services, as I often do. It's such a hassle to keep porting phone numbers (LNP), or, actually switching phone numbers. My particular situation is that I have two phone numbers of Vonage, and one on my iPhone - I want to keep the iPhone but dump Vonage while keeping the numbers - I want to try Skype, but they don't let you port phone numbers in. What's a cheap way to keep these phone numbers? More specifically, I'm curious about the following: [more inside]
Cell phones, changing carriers, number portability and other considerations. [more inside]
I need a quick and preferably cheap method to park a wireless phone number I don't want to lose. [more inside]
